We go along and go along and go along but some days, you read something that you might ordinarily note and file and it suddenly hits you that this time, you just can't overlook it and before you know it, you're ranting and raving like a "left wing whack job."
Today was one of those days for me. This week on Hardball, the nightly news porn show in cable prime time, Chris Matthews served us up this lovely piece of trash that almost blew my tv through my window. He said as quoted by Media Matters:
On the November 28 edition of MSNBC's Hardball, host Chris Matthews said of President Bush: "I like him. Everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs, maybe on the left." Since polls show that most Americans have an unfavorable view of the president, Matthews is labeling the majority of the populace "whack-jobs." This is only one of several recent examples of Matthews's habit of insulting those with whom he disagrees and of his fawning praise for Bush. Matthews's comments demonstrate his disconnect from the American public.
So, as I said, today being one of those days, I fired this off to all of the MSNBC addresses I could find...it's not pretty...but I invite you to let them know what your thoughts are about this abuse of journalism and I'd be willing to bet if you do, it won't be pretty either! My letter as follows:
I am so sick and tired and fed up of listening to this pasty- faced doughboy drool, cheerlead and kiss the behind of the most notorious, ignominious, illicit, illegitimate and duplicitous man who has ever graced our once beautiful, meaningful and precious democracy.
What Matthews does each and every night to this un-president is what Monica did for President Clinton and you can take it to the bank that you are losing viewers because of it. We're not stupid here in real America and that's something you faux news-people have "misunderestimated."
So, I suggest that if you want to remain the curiously viable and competitive phony news operation that you are, your best bet is to fire this incompetent Matthews immediately. I do NOT share his opinion that "everybody" likes this president. I don't like liars and I don't like gangsters and thugs...especially when they have taken over our government. And make no mistake about it..I am no left wing "whack job" and I take great offense to Matthews' labeling Americans who can think for themselves as such. I am a well-respected Registered Nurse and when I think of this charlatan Matthews posing as some kind of professional, it literally makes me sick. He dares to call those of us who disagree with the Rape and Plundering of the Former United States of America as "whack jobs?" And YOU do nothing about that? And, for the record, my specialty in nursing happens to be Psychiatry. Please tell me, what credentials to assess mental status does the self-admitted, recovering alcoholic Chris Matthews hold to determine that ANYONE is a "whack job?"
I do have a big mouth for sure and you can be certain I'll be using it to communicate to vast amounts of folks that MSNBC should be eliminated from their channel surfing.
Fire him. And then clean your act up. I once worked for General Electric and I know what you're really all about.
